Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed that Black Panther's fictional African nation, Wakanda, will be an "anchor point" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward. The first installment has officially been in theaters for a month and is days away from crossing the billion-dollar milestone at the worldwide box office, which is pretty unbelievable considering that the movie was only tracking for a $120 million opening weekend. This strong showing is enough to give Black Panther one of Marvel's biggest opening days in the history of China's box office.

This bit of news comes as Black Panther has remarkably entered the Top 10 highest grossing films of all time, Box Office Mojo reports on Friday, Mar. 9 (And this total is for movies overall, not just Marvel or comic book-featured films).

Kevin Feige is a huge fan of the Ryan Coogler, and has previously expressed his interested in working with the director again for a Black Panther sequel. But one element that stood out as particularly excellent was T'Challa's sister, Wakanda's Princess and genius level scientist Shuri, as played by Letitia Wright.




During the promotion for Civil War, Black Panther was seen as mysterious, which ultimately made viewers want to know more about him. "One of the favorite pastimes at Marvel Studios is sitting around on a Part One and talking and dreaming about what we would do in a Part Two", he said. With this mindset, I made sure I wouldn't miss the opportunity to see this movie, even if it meant trekking out to a small theater in Sandy with almost a foot of snow piled up on the ground.

No word yet on a potential release date, Feige said. Although his job is to find "a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much", it's hard to deny the appeal of some Black Panther spin-offs. Same thing with the whole third act of Infinity War being in Wakanda. Okoye, I think I'd watch three action films just Okoye. The report also noted that Disney would not only campaign for "Black Panther" but also for the upcoming film, "Mary Poppins Returns".

"I'm not saying we're doing that, but I'm saying that we're intrigued by them", Feige added.
